Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group Announces the 2nd Annual Celiac Children's Camp!

Cathy from the Sherwood Park Celiac Support group sent me a press release at the beginning of March about their second annual Celiac Kids Camp that children with Celiac Disease from Sherwood Park, Edmonton and area can attend!  What a great opportunity.  Below is the release:
The Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group is thrilled to announce the 2nd
annual Celiac Children's Camp! 
Our first camp, which ran in July of 2012, was a huge success with both the
Celiac campers and parents alike.  We received wonderful reviews, not only
about the gluten-free food served, but also about the fabulous activities
at the camp. 
The Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group partnered with the Allergy Asthma
Information Association (AAIA) and YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center to provide an opportunity for children with Celiac disease to attend summer
camp.  The camp is open to children 6 - 15 years of age and will be held at
the YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Center (80 km west of Edmonton, AB) from August 5 - 9, 2013.  The Celiac campers will participate in all camp
activities.  They will eat with their assigned groups, but receive a
modified menu and serve themselves from a gluten-free buffet.  Every effort
will be made to ensure that there is no cross-contamination. 
We would like to make this opportunity to go to camp available to ALL
Celiac children.  Your help in accomplishing this would be greatly
appreciated!  I've attached our poster.  If you know of any Celiac children
that may be interested in going to camp, would you be so kind as to pass
this along?  Thank you, in advance, for your help! 
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at
